Vision and Mission
We will become the world’s largest distributor of clean energy to help eradicate poverty and enhance social sustainability.
To help eradicate energy poverty, provide ammonia for fertilizer, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the supply Smart Energy using our intermodal type-4 technology.
How will CanaGas make a progressive positive impact?
We will do so through the widespread reduction of greenhouse gases emanating from farm and forestry waste that is piled onto compost heaps. Such decomposing organic material produces a lot of biogas (a combination of methane and CO2). As methane is 25 to 35 times worse than CO2 as a greenhouse gas, this is a big global problem. Currently, there is no feasible way to store, transfer, and then transport biogas to an upgrade facility to separate the methane and CO2. That naturally created biogas therefore enters the atmosphere. The alternative is to the process the biogas at the digester; however, that adds complexity and increases costs significantly. Where most farms are not near a pipeline tie-in, the potential of commercially producing biogas from a digester is just not practical. As a result, there are literally tens of thousands of rural farms throughout North America that emit biogas into the atmosphere; hundreds of thousands throughout the world.
CanaGas low-temperature type-4 pressure vessel technology provides a practical and low-cost way to liquefy, store and then transport biogas to an upgrade facility to produce Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). As it is cold on arrival, the CO2 is easily separated from the methane. Where that CO2 is sequestered (transported in a CanaGas transport module), the remaining RNG is not only carbon neutral, but carbon negative, further increasing the value of the CanaGas process. As the produced RNG is also cold, it costs very little to liquefy it as Pressurized-Liquefied Natural Gas (P-LNG). It can then be transported to anyone, anywhere, using low-cost intermodal infrastructure.
The collection of such biogas from farms and forestry operations will have a profound positive impact on the world. It will also generate alternate income for farmers. The by-product of the bio-digester is organic fertilizer. Some farmers will use the gas for power and or fuel.
The synthetic production of methane, methanol, dimethyl either (DME) and jet fuel using renewable energy has recently been demonstrated with great success. Hydrogen is produced from solar or wind and combined with CO2 to make such renewable fuels. This is the start of a renewable circular carbon economy.
CanaGas will be working diligently to use the organic CO2 separated at upgrade facilities to create and safely transport such renewable fuels to the world.
Recently, renewable power has also been demonstrated to make ammonia, known as green ammonia. That said, due to the lower cost of production, most ammonia is made from methane. That process produces grey ammonia. Where the CO2 is captured from the said process, blue ammonia is produced. Regardless of the process colour, grey, blue, or green, ammonia is the largest source of fertilizer in the world. When burned in an engine, ammonia is a zero-carbon fuel. It can also be cracked to produce hydrogen for fuel cells.
